Eindhoven is preparing for the light art festival GLOW. The theme for the ninth edition this year is ‘City in Motion’. Fifty international artists will transform Eindhoven city centre into a dynamic light landscape with light installations, sculptures, projections and performances at locations all over the city.
In November the townscape will be bathed in light art for eight days. GLOW offers a platform to artists, designers and architects active in the field of light. The exhibition will take place in public spaces and interaction between the townscape and the public forms a central theme for the works. It is a challenge for the artists, designers and architects to transform the centre of Eindhoven into a huge temporary museum.
GLOW is also an experiment, critical reflection and preview of the influence of light in public spaces. GLOW demonstrates that the possibilities of light art are inexhaustible.
The Glow artists have pulled out all the stops to thrill the public with their light creations on a four-kilometre long light art route which begins at the GLOW Café in Schellens’ former textile factory and follows an inner city route. GLOW is free for everyone and runs from 8 until 15 November 2014.
Last year GLOW attracted no fewer than 520,000 visitors.
